I am totally new quail, and need some help. I have 7 Texas A&M quail in a 3x2' cage, 4 golden Italians in a 2x1 1/2' cage, and 2 pharaohs, 1 Italian, and 1 A&M in another 2x1 1/2' cage. I feed them game bird feed. In the last 3 days, the big cage has gone nuts. They all have evidence of pecking, and 2 had to be brought inside to recover. This morning, i also found one who had stuck its head through the wire and snapped its neck. I got them for free from a friend about 2 weeks ago, and they had 5 in a 6 inch by 1 foot cage. They did have one pecked pretty bad, but had them for months with no deaths. I thought bigger was better. I don't know the sex of any except the pharaohs. Could this be affecting it? What am i doing wrong? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
